In the coarse of my life, I have been sporadically blogging for over a decade-and-a-half: first personal blogs–where I focused on art and religious history as topics as well as just a personal daybook–on the infant social media like Live Journal, then around 2007 I began writing about critical theories and empirical variation of pedagogical theories on a forerunner to this blog, and after I left the country, I began writing about my ad hoc understanding of politics and anthropology, which increasingly became concerned with critical theory.
It is clear to me, however, that my loves have always been history of religion, the history and philosophy of science, and the overlap with politics. I have decided that my dyslexia and aphasia means that I need to focus on my poetry, my podcasts, and possible articles/book length material with a co-author on those topics instead of an vaguely unfocused political blog. As such, this blog really doesn’t have the same purpose it once did–I need to work with editors and do slower writing that blogging generally requires.
This will remain here for archives, and I may pick this up again. For now, however, it’s time to end transmission.

Would love if you wrote a book of nonfiction. What do you think it might cover, specifically?
it is on the redeveloping the “scientific” parts of scientific socialism. And then maybe a second book of poems.
That is tough. We have been working on a bunch of things: On Lakatos and Marxism, on dogmism and bounded choice leading to political betrayal, on revisiting historical materialism.
